Today is Training Day 1 for the Southern Tour 50k.
I’ve delivered a training plan that’s certainly not a “win-the-race” plan, but I’m not a “win-the-race” kind of runner. I think it’s definitely a “finish-the-race” plan.
Here’s it is:
There aren’t specific run workouts. It’s straight mileage. If I get comfortable, it’s possible that I’ll make the Tuesday and Thursday runs into something like “speed work”, but it won’t be much more complicated than light-post sprints.
Mondays and Fridays are cross-training/active recovery days. Those days will focus on yoga and calisthenics. Also, there will be a 10 minute calisthenic workout after the Wednesday and Sunday runs.
That’s the plan. It’s firmly set in jello, so I’m willing to change things if I think it’s needed.
What do you think of the plan? Have any advice for a first time 50k runner?
